May 24Caprese Bites with Balsamic Drizzle
If you are still searching for the perfect and EASY appetizer to bring to your BBQ this weekend, this is it. These little caprese bites come together in no time and are irresistible to eat. You start off by reducing balsamic vinegar on the stove top to create a syrupy sauce, I kind of recently have had a love affair with anything balsamic. After that you simply, thread your traditional caprese ingredients on to toothpicks to create the cutest, most refreshing bite. Your friends will love you since these to me are basically summer in a tiny bite. Blair and I enjoyed them as an appetizer last week when I was waiting for him to grill dinner. There is not much else to say, but make them for your gathering this weekend!
Caprese Bites with Balsamic Drizzle
1 cup balsamic vinegar
cherry or grape tomatoes
mini mozzarella cheese balls (could use regular sized ball, and cut into bite-sized pieces)
fresh basil leaves, cut in half if large
salt & pepper
What you’ll do:
Bring balsamic vinegar up to a boil in a saucepan, then lower heat to medium and simmer until it’s the consistency of very thin maple syrup, about 10 minutes. Pour into a bowl and let cool.
In the mean time, cut tomatoes in half. Thread a mini mozzarella cheese ball, basil leaf (fold in half if large) and a tomato half onto a tooth pick. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Sprinkle with salt & pepper, then drizzle cooled balsamic reduction on top.
